Marlborough mosquito control Services
If you ever find anybody who actually likes mosquitoes, please let us know. We haven’t found one yet. These tiny but treacherous monsters ruin everything. Not just backyard barbecues and bonfires, but they’re literally the most deadly animals in the world because of all the diseases they carry. And in recent years, the CDC reports, diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled.
West Nile virus, the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States, has been found in Marlborough mosquitoes yet again. The Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), which covers the City of Marlborough, is doing what they can to keep the mosquito population at bay but unfortunately, their efforts are an uphill battle and not very effective protection for homeowners in their Marlborough MA mosquito control overall.
Why? There are a couple reasons.
The first reason is that municipal projects like CMMCP only treat public areas such as swampy wetlands, parks, and roadways. While their fogging trucks might go through your neighborhood at night, rarely does that fog that they use go further than the end of your driveway. Meaning, they can’t protect you in you own yard, which is basically a safe haven for the bugs beyond the fog’s reach.
Plus, while CMMCP does use larvicide in swampy areas to combat the growth of the young mosquito population, the most likely places those larvae are going to develop into grownup mosquitoes that are a danger to you isn’t those swamps — it’s your own property. Further, the fogging spray that they use only kills adult mosquitoes on contact. There are plenty of other mosquitoes elsewhere that the fog doesn’t get, who are happy to keep moving in and around once the fog settles, looking for their next meal.
Relying on a municipal project like that is not a gamble anyone should take. It’s Mosquito Squad’s top priority to protect you and your loved ones right in your own yard from mosquitoes and the illnesses they carry. Our traditional barrier treatment is the most effective solution for your home Marlborough MA mosquito control, eliminating up to 90% of mosquitoes and other biting bugs on your property for three weeks straight.
For three weeks? How does Mosquito Squad’s Marlborough MA mosquito control work, exactly?
It’s a question we hear a lot. People are often skeptical that our barrier treatment is that effective and lasts that long, but we guarantee it. Here’s how it works:
First we take a walk around your property and get rid of any standing water pools and treat those areas with larvicide. This gets rid of any larvae (future adult mosquitoes) and their eggs. As we said, the CMMCP’s larvicide is distributed in marshy public areas, and the places where the larvae will grow into adult mosquitoes that will bother you are in your yard, not a nearby swamp. Places like tarps with standing water, or children’s toys, or even puddles in your yard are prime places for mosquito eggs to grow and hatch. It only takes a bottle cap full of water to unleash a hundreds of mosquito eggs and grow potentially millions of mosquitoes in your yard.
After larviciding, we get to work treating the perimeter of your property with our EPA-registered barrier treatment spray, then work our way inward. This will eliminate bugs on contact, and then settle onto everything around it, drying in about 30 minutes. When dry, it creates a colorless, odorless fence or “barrier” against mosquitoes. Any mosquito that lands onto the residue will be eliminated shortly thereafter, for about three weeks. The secret to our barrier treatment is micro encapsulation, which makes it time-released in a similar fashion to any extended release prescription you may take. It is with this chemical property that Mosquito Squad is able to guarantee 90% effectiveness of your Marlborough MA mosquito control for up to 21 days.
For continuous protection, we offer seasonal plans so you can enjoy worry-free, uninterrupted summers. We’ll always call a day ahead of time to remind you that we’re coming, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave confirmation of service on your door.
For maximum Marlborough MA mosquito control, consider a misting system
Do you have a horse farm, or perhaps live near a wooded area, or have waterfront property? Or do you just want even more control over your Marlborough yard’s mosquito population? If so, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems, where the power is in your hands. These systems are programmed to release our micro encapsulated formula at designated intervals for 30-45 seconds, and you’e got control to release it at any time with the press of a button via the included remote control. This tactic ensures over 90% mosquito reduction, and best of all — we take care of the installation, refills, maintenance, and even seasonal set-up and winterization. Installation is relatively easy for our technicians, and we make sure to place the misters in unnoticeable areas for aesthetic purposes.
